How to crop 4K source to HD output?

Dear Forum,

I do apologise if this came up early in the Forum.
I would like to crop 4K video source video files and export cropped selection to a HD video.
Basically, I intend to crop 4K video onto HD without zooming and losing video quality and resolution.
Many thanks in advance for your help and understanding.

Kind regards,

That isn’t possible as far as I know.

If I understand your goal, your output HD image will only be showing 1/4th of the original image because you are cropping out 1/2 the width and 1/2 the height.

The best way to do this without any scaling is to use the “Crop Source” video filter.

Hi Brian,

Thank you for your reply.
Initially, I was a bit lost; crop: source wasn’t visible until I dragged the source video (UHD 2160p Project) to the timeline… I played a bit with crop:soirce filter and exported the video as HD (1080p). All good now.
Thank you for your help.
